Aconchi

 

The town of Aconchi was established in 1639 by Bartolome Castanos, a Jesuit missionary. The name comes from the Opata language and means "place on the walls".

The main attraction is the nearby Agua Caliente Water Park, with it's unique natural hot springs which are reported to have curative powers.  The park includes camping areas, swimming pools, picnic areas and grills.

The San Pedro and San Pablo church on the town square, while not as old as some in neighboring communities is unique for the "Black Christ" displayed in the sanctuary.

The principal economic activity in the area is agriculture including large cattle ranching.  Aconchi is also renowned for its fine wood furniture and furnishing production with over 50 small custom carpentry shops located in the community.
